Scott, dunno.

A couple years ago, I believe he was still on the PRA roster, but don't know if he was current. I think I recall seeing his name going by as we were sticking address labels on mailers for Rotors Over The Rockies.

I haven't heard of any aircraft-related activity in a while.

Too bad, he was ahead of his time, I can see the windryder as a great contender to the current crop of Euro gyros. He built great blades too.

Yep - If he had updated to achieve chordwise balance, and could have made them in sufficient quantities, he might have been able to build them for some of the euro-gyros. But they were getting pretty expensive, especially in big sizes, before he quit the market.
